In a preview for an upcoming episode of the Fox Nation series “Tucker Carlson Originals” Musician Kid Rock said he had no regrets of a public drunken rant during which he was highly critical of Oprah Winfrey and Joy Behar.

The episode titled “Life of a Rock Star” gives an in-depth look into the rock and roller, including how he has zero plans to apologize to the two women.

Newsweek reported:

During his 2019 rant, Rock repeated, “F*** Oprah Winfrey and f*** Kathie Lee Gifford.” He added, “I’m not a bad guy. I’m just an honest guy that says, ‘Hey, I don’t like Oprah Winfrey or Joy Behar. They can suck d*** sideways.'”

At the time, he continued his tirade against Oprah on social media as he tweeted about the television host.

Rock clarified that he meant to speak about Kathy Griffin, not Kathie Lee Gifford in the video which was filmed at a venue in Nashville, Tennessee and published by TMZ. “I own what I said” said Rock during his interview with Tucker Carlson.

“Students and even professors who have been expelled or threatened with expulsion can continue their studies at Shiraz University, and I think that other universities in Shiraz, as well as Fars Province, are also prepared,” Mohammad Moazzeni, the school’s leader, told the state-owned Press TV.

The Associated Press reported that more than 2,000 individuals have been arrested at various college locations throughout the U.S. in recent demonstrations against Israel’s military operations in Gaza.

Several other universities in Iran have reportedly joined the endeavor. Shahid Beheshti University’s president, Mahmoud Aghamiri, said that his institution has “considered scholarships for these students and will fully pay for their education, dormitory, and stay.”

Foreign Desk News reports that notable violent incidents have occurred at Brown University, Columbia University, California State Polytechnic University, Emerson College, Emory University, George Washington University, New York University, the University of North Carolina, Portland State University, Yale University, and the University of California at Los Angeles.
